You all know that Teach is trying really hard to be a teacher. She has finished all of her coursework and she is getting ready to do her student teaching at a local elementary school. (So is the Drama Queen, although her student teaching is in a junior high.) But this story is about Teach.
Last year she had an assignment to do something with a child. That’s it…do something…and then turn it into a lesson. It was supposed to be child-directed, in other words, the kid got to pick the activity. So Teach partnered up with Scout and asked her what she would like to do. She immediately said she would like to bob for apples. Who thinks of that???
But Teach is usually up for any kind of adventure, so she loaded Scout in her car and off they went to the grocery store to buy some apples. I’m not sure how it happened, but they also ended up with doughnuts.
|Part 2- As promised.|
I’m still a little fuzzy on the lesson here (perseverance, maybe?), but it was fun to watch the kids try to bite into a doughnut that kept swinging away from them. Except for the Dog Walker. That poor doughnut didn't stand a chance. He pretty much swallowed the whole thing in one bite.
As a parent, I’m thinking I want my little ones to be in Teach’s classroom…education has sure changed since I was a kid…and the playgrounds are much safer too.
